Miyan Williams enters his third season at Ohio State in 2022. After serving as a strong backup option in 2021, Williams will look to make an impact again this season.

The 5-foot-8 Williams has not shied away from contact and led all Buckeye running backs with 7.2 yards per carry in 2021. For his career, Williams is just over 7 yards per carry.
